Let me start off saying I love the Mass Effect series. Though Mass Effect 3 is a fun game overall, there are some major flaws.
1.The journal system is horrible, doesn't tell you what missions you completed till you actually go to the person you got it from, other wise it stays showing as active even after you got the object..
2.Only two places to explore Normandy & The Citadel, unlike ME2 where you could run around Omega, Citadel, Illium etc.
3.Custom face importer is bugged, so the custom Shepard face you created in ME1 and imported to ME2, won't work in ME3 it goes to default face. Might be fixed in the future.
4.You get most your side missions by "overhearing" conversations instead of talking to NPC's with the dialogue screen. This was in DA2 as well.It's is basically a way to cut corners and save time on programming.
5.Used internet stock photos and photoshopped them to use in the game. Tali's face being the big one. Again seems they cut corners and rushed it.
6. The Ending: It failed on so many levels. Without any spoilers. Bioware's promises over the last year about how there would be 1000 variables from ME1 and ME2 all factoring into the ME3 story and ending, your choices will effect the outcome Basically it doesn't, all your choices and even those made in ME3 itself is negated by the ending,not to mention some huge plot holes in the end as well. A big letdown. For me it is my belief they pretty much they ran out of time, was nearing the deadline and slapped together an ending to finish the game.
Overall ME3 is not a horrible game, in fact like I said a lot of it is fun,so is the multiplayer if you like wave coop. But a lot of people including me was disappointed in how it ended. Promised one thing and got another. I bought the collectors edition, but might be wise to wait for a drop in price unless you really want the game.
